History

In 2019, Best Kept Secret will be organised for the seventh time in a row. In our relatively short history, we’ve had the honor of welcoming over 350 artists and performers to our festival, with an abundance of incredible moments to cherish and reminisce about. In 2014, The War On Drugs ushered the sun below the horizon with their majestic courtship of guitars. And surely, who could forget Damien Rice’s legendary solo performance during Best Kept Secret’s inaugural edition? The same year, alt-J performed a mind-boggling set at the TWO, causing many visitors to wonder whether they should’ve graced the main stage instead. And of course, that’s exactly what happened two years later. In 2017, we were able to have Radiohead, your ánd our dream headliner, to close ONE with an unforgettable performance. A year later veterans Arctic Monkeys, The National and LCD Soundsystem played astonishing shows, but we also witnessed the definitive breakthrough of bands such as Khruangbin.
